OPK interpretation - Calling all experts

I've looked at this stick so much I'm cross eyed. Overall it doesn't look like it's darker than the control line, but it's hard for me to tell because I've stared at it so much and because it's not a uniform color throughout the whole line. Interpretations appreciated!

I would call that a positive OPK. In general with the cheapie ones, I think if any part of the line is as dark or darker than the control it's probably positive, but it's all kind of a little arbitrary. If I were taking OPK's though, I would call that one positive.

Erin, I vote positive for these...

have you thought about getting a few digital opks so you can have absolute confirmation once you think you're getting positive internet cheapie opks? That's my plan of attack. :o)

Thanks, ladies! That's what I was leaning toward, but I was second-guessing myself.

Andi - No, digitals hadn't crossed my mind! I'm trying to add only one thing at a time to my TTC arsenal!

That is definitely positive. The cheap strips are not that exact. But more to the point, the reason you use an OPK is to know when to BD. The worst thing that would happen is that you BD today, and the line gets even darker so you BD again tomorrow. Either way, when the test line is that close to the control line, I would BD.

Thanks, Missy! Yeah, I was kind of thinking that it wasn't an exact science and to take it as a positive. Glad now that I did, especially because today it was definitely negative. :)
